I have been walking along chuo-dori(street) from ginza for akihabara, and I'm at nihonbashi bridge.
Original nihonbashi bridge was built in 1603 as wooden bridge.
It was a symbol of Edo(old name of Tokyo) on that days.
Current bridge( the 19th nihonbashi bridge) made of stone was built 1911.
I like this bridge and details of the bridge.
But I think the scenery of the bridge is not so beautiful, because of the highway above the bridge.
I think that highway (Metropolitan Expressway) should move to under ground.
To be continued.
